Quantum Nano Collision (QNC) Seminar Series aims to deepen the engagement of the Waterloo researchers who work at the interface of quantum and nanotechnologies. This seminar series will also provide opportunities for senior graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and research associates to present their innovative work along with the faculty members to bring together the excitement around these cutting-edge technologies that would shape our future. This talk for the QNC Seminar Series will be delivered by Professor Mustafa Yavuz.
Registration is required. If you have any questions or issues registering, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Quantum Electronic Solids (QES) for Opto-Nano and Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems
Quantum electronic solids such as high temperature non-stoichiometric perovskite superconducting oxides such as Y-Ba-Cu-O and Bi-Sr-Ca-Cu-O, 2D materials such as graphene, defective perovskites such as titania, graphene like materials such as hexagonal boron nitride (BN) and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) such as MoS2 and TiS2 have been emerging as powerful instruments to design and innovate ultra-fast and super-performing opto-nano and micro-electro-mechanical devices since more than a decade.
This talk aims to give audience an insight into how QES is used towards fabrication and functionalization of ultra-sensitive and accurate electronic-, plasmonic- and photo-electro-chemical sensors for biomedical and environmental applications.
